CRESCO, IA (April 30, 2000) — A beautiful day welcomed the racers and their fans to the Cresco Speedway in Cresco, Iowa, Sunday night.

After a couple of caution flags started the Modified feature race, Ken Hofner took the lead and held on for the first five laps before Kevin Pittman took over, coming up from his fourth row starting spot. Pittman looked to have the race well in hand until Corey Dripps came up to run side by side for the final two laps. Pittman held the advantage until Dripps pulled out the win in a photo finish. Troy Langowski finish third followed by Dean Reiss and Tim Heins. This was Dripps' second victory in a row. Heat wins went to Dan Bohr, Pittman and Reiss, with Brad Rain picking up the consy victory.

Carl Cosch jumped out to a big lead in the Hobby Stock feature race until a yellow caution flag came out at the halfway point. On the restart, Dan Jones, last week's winner, closed in and took away the lead and held on for his second win in a row. Colsch finished second, followed by Jeff Vsetecka, Andy Burke and Brian Losen. Heat wins went to Vsetecka, Cosch and Losen, with Tory Reicks winning the consy.

The Stock Car feature was a battle with numerous cars taking their turn running up front with cars running two- and three-wide around the track. At the halfway point, Scott Bauer took over the lead and ran away from the pack, picking up his second straight win. Ron Konkel, Brian Tank, Jeff Schleutter and Troy Scholbrock rounded out the top five. Stock Car heat winners were Mike Bergen, Scholbrock and Marinus Mlady.

Dean Schlangen jumped out front for the Pure Stock feature and led flag to flag to pick up the win. Shawn Erickson finished second, followed by Mark Mensink, Robert Walker and Bob Praska. Erickson won the Pure Stock heat.
